Bio

Andrew Higginson enjoyed his strongest tournament to date as a professional at the 2007 Welsh Open where he made his first maximum break en route to his maiden ranking event final.

The ‘Widnes Warrior’ defeated Marco Fu, John Higgins, Michael Judge, Ali Carter and Stephen Maguire to become the first unranked player since Terry Griffiths in 1979 to reach a ranking event final, eventually losing 9-8 to Neil Robertson having at one stage led 8-6.

Other highlights include progression to the semi-finals of the 2012 Players Championship Grand Final (l. Stephen Lee) as well as the last eight of the Riga Masters in 2017.

In 2011 he won his first professional title at the Players Tour Championship Event 5 in Sheffield, a victory which helped him to a career-high ranking of number 18 in the world.

His best run at the World Championship came in 2012 when he defeated Lee before losing to Jamie Jones in the last 16.
